Is it permissible for women to recite the Qur'an out loud at home?

Q 4: Is it permissible for a Muslim woman to recite the Qur’an audibly in her house after seeking her husband’s permission? What manners of reciting the Noble Qur’an should women follow, such as lowering the voice, proper dress code, purity of the place and other conditions?


A: Yes, it is permissible, unless she intentionally recites sweetly and loudly enough to be heard (Part No. 4; Page No. 155) by Ajanib (men other than a husband or permanently unmarriageable male relatives) outside her house, lest they should be infatuated by her sweet voice.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
